Tourists seem to go head over heels for this giant head!

Eros Bendato (Eros bound) is a giant…well…head in the middle of Rynek Główny, the main square in Krakow, Poland!

The bronze noggin was sculpted by Igor Mitoraj in 1999 and moved to Krakow in 2003.

There was never a moment I didn’t see someone taking their photo with it…or inside of it! I just hope its popularity didn’t go to its head!
